1 ʻOku ne ueʻi ʻakinautolu ke mau tānaki ʻae koloa lahi maʻae kāinga māʻoniʻoni kae masiva ʻi Selūsalema, ʻo hangē ko e fai ʻe he kāinga ʻi Masitōnia, 7 ʻOku ne ueʻi ʻakinautolu ʻaki ʻenau tomuʻa fie fai, 9 Mo e ngāue ʻofa ʻa Kalaisi, 14 Pea mo e ʻaonga fakalaumālie ʻe hoko ai kiate kinautolu: 16 ʻOku ne fakaongolelei ʻae angatonu mo e loto faʻa fai ʻa Taitusi, pea mo e kāinga kehe, ʻakinautolu naʻe akonaki mo fakaongolelei ʻe Paula ke nau fai ʻae ngāue ko ia.
Pea ko eni, ʻe kāinga, ʻoku mau fakaʻilo atu kiate kimoutolu ʻae ʻofa ʻae ʻOtua kuo foaki ki he ngaahi siasi ʻo Masitōnia; Koeʻuhi naʻe tupulekina ʻenau fiefia ʻi he ʻahiʻahi lahi ʻi he meʻa mamahi, pea tupulekina ʻo lahi ʻenau foaki kae lolotonga ʻenau masiva lahi. He ʻoku ou fakamoʻoni ki heʻenau mafai mei honau loto, ʻio, ʻo lahi hake ʻi heʻenau faʻa fai; Mo nau kole fakamātoato kiate kimautolu ke mau maʻu ʻae foaki, pea mau kau ki hono tauhi mā ʻae kakai māʻoniʻoni. Pea ʻikai ke hangē ko ʻemau ʻamanaki, ka naʻa nau fuofua foaki ʻakinautolu ki he ʻEiki, pea kiate kimautolu foki ʻi he finangalo ʻoe ʻOtua. Ko ia naʻa mau pehē ai kia Taitusi, ko e meʻa ʻi heʻene kamata fai, ke ne fakaʻosi ʻae ngāue ko ia ʻiate kimoutolu foki. Ko ia, pea ʻi hoʻomou tupulekina ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē, ʻi he tui, mo e lea, mo e ʻilo, mo e faʻa fai kotoa pē, pea mo hoʻomou ʻofa kiate kimautolu, ke mou tupulekina ʻi he lelei ni foki. ‌ʻOku ʻikai teu tala eni ko e fekau, ka ko e meʻa ʻi he fiefie fai ʻoe niʻihi, pea ke, fakamoʻoni ʻaki ʻae moʻoni ʻo hoʻomou ʻofa. He ʻoku mou ʻilo ʻae ʻulungāanga lelei ʻa hotau ʻEiki ko Sisu Kalaisi, ʻa ʻene mohu koloaʻia, ka naʻe hoko ʻo masiva koeʻuhi ko kimoutolu, koeʻuhi ʻi heʻene masiva ke mou koloaʻia ai. 10 Pea ʻi he meʻa ni ʻoku ou enginakiʻi: he ʻoku ʻaonga ia kiate kimoutolu, he kuo mou tomuʻa kamata fai, pea ʻoku ʻikai ko ia pe, ka naʻa mou fie fai talu ʻae taʻu kuo hili. 11 Pea ko eni, fakatoʻotoʻo ʻa hono fai; ke hangē ko e fie loto ki ai, pea ke pehē foki ʻae fie fai mei he meʻa ʻoku mou maʻu. 12 He kapau ʻoku ai ʻae loto lelei ki ai, ʻe lau ia, ʻo fakatatau ki he meʻa ʻoku maʻu ʻe he tangata, ka e ʻikai fakatatau mo ia ʻoku ʻikai te ne maʻu. 13 ‌ʻOku ʻikai fai eni koeʻuhi ke fiemālie ʻae niʻihi, kae māfasia ʻakimoutolu: 14 Ka ʻi he fakatatau ʻi he kuonga ni hoʻomou maʻumeʻa lahi ki heʻenau masiva, ke hoko ai ʻenau maʻumeʻa lahi ko e tokoni ki hoʻomou masiva foki koeʻuhi ke fakatatau pe: 15 ‌ʻO hangē ko ia kuo tohi, “Ko ia naʻa ne tānaki ʻo lahi, naʻe ʻikai hano toe; pea ko ia naʻe tānaki ʻo siʻi, naʻe ʻikai haʻane masiva.” 16 Kae fakafetaʻi ki he ʻOtua, ʻaia naʻe ʻai ki he loto ʻo Taitusi ʻae tokanga lahi ko ia kiate kimoutolu. 17 He ko e moʻoni naʻa ne tali ʻae enginaki; ka naʻe muʻomuʻa hono loto ki ai, naʻe ʻalu atu ia kiate kimoutolu ko hono loto pe. 18 Pea kuo mau fekau mo ia ʻae kāinga ʻoku ʻofeina ʻe he ngaahi siasi kotoa pē, koeʻuhi ko e ongoongolelei; 19 Pea ʻoku ʻikai ko ia pe, ka ke ongoongolelei ai ʻae ʻEiki pe ko ia, pea mo homou loto fie fai: 20 ‌ʻO vakai eni, ke ʻoua naʻa lauʻikovi ʻakimautolu ʻe ha tokotaha ʻi he meʻa lahi ni ʻoku mau tauhi: 21 He ʻoku mau tokonaki ʻae ngaahi meʻa matamatalelei, ʻikai ʻi he ʻao ʻoe ʻEiki pe, kae ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kakai foki. 22 Pea kuo mau fekau mo kinaua hotau kāinga, ʻaia kuo liunga lahi ʻemau ʻilo ʻene faʻa fai ʻi he ngaahi meʻa lahi, ka ko eni, ʻoku ʻāsili ʻene faʻa fai, ʻi heʻene faʻaki mālohi atu kiate kimoutolu. 23 Pea ko Taitusi, ko hoku tokoua ia mo e kaunga ngāue kiate kimoutolu: pea ko homau kāinga, ko e kau faifekau ʻae ngaahi siasi mo e nāunau ʻa Kalaisi ʻakinautolu. 24 Ko ia mou fakahā kiate kinautolu, ʻi he ʻao ʻoe ngaahi Siasi, ha fakamoʻoni ʻo hoʻomou ʻofa, pea mo e mau vikiviki koeʻuhi ko kimoutolu.
